Sharp End, July 4th

Wales wants to reduce emissions from transport so should we be embracing new cleaner forms of travel? One sight that's become common on Welsh roads are e-scooters and despite their popularity, they remain illegal in public spaces.

Those who want e-scooters made legal say they will be an asset to tackling climate change. But detractors, say e-scooters are dangerous and the correct infrastructure is needed before they can be allowed here. Rob Osborne has been to Bristol, one of the areas in England where an e-scooter pilot is underway, to see how well they work there.

Joining him to discuss more on the matter is Dr Georgina Santos, a transport expert from Cardiff University and Ansley Workman from the charity, RNIB Cymru.

Also on the show, over the weekend members of the Labour Party in Wales gave their backing to increase the number of Senedd members from 60 to 96 and change the voting system. Adrian Masters looks at what it means for politics in Wales.

Following the recent rail strikes, and with more industrial action looking likely in other industries, are we heading for a summer of discontent? Joining Rob to discuss more is Ian Price from CBI Wales and Shavanah Taj from the Wales TUC.
